Lane Quote #48
Lane: I have a major problem.
Lane: Henry, the guy I have been dancing with.
Lane: Okay, he's really good in school. He's gonna be a doctor. Pediatrician, to be exact. His parents are extremely involved in their local church. He himself helps out with Sunday school. He speaks Korean fluently, he respects his parents. And he's also really cute, very funny, and surprisingly interesting.
Rory: Lane, I'm sorry, but I'm totally failing to see the problem here.
Lane: I'm falling for a guy my parents would approve of! They'd love him! They'd go crazy! There'd be dancing in the Kim house! Dancing!
Lane: Followed by a lot of praying. But initially, there'd be dancing. This is horrible. It can't happen. I have to stop it. We need to go.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: Rory, my heart, it is Saturday, the day of rest.
Rory: Sunday is the day of rest.
Lorelai: No, Saturday is the day of pre-rest.
Lorelai: Yeah, so that way when you actually get to Sunday you're rested enough to enjoy your rest.
Rory: That makes absolutely no sense.
Lorelai: That's because it's 6:00 on Saturday morning.
Quote from Lorelai
Lorelai: Honey, he did not plan a romantic evening complete with dinner and a junkyard which we'll get back to later... And then suddenly decide to dump you.
Rory: How do you know?
Lorelai: Because I've read every Nancy Drew mystery. The one about the Amish country twice. I know there's more to the story than what you're telling me.
Quote from Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too
Lane: [on the phone] Need I mention the rock 'n' roll casualties from intra-band dating?
Rory: I know they're numerous.
Lane: Not that there's not success stories. I mean, you've got your Cramps, your Yo La Tengo, your Kim and Thurstons.
Rory: Sonny and Cher, the Early Years.
Lane: Plus, you've got bands that have survived breakups, No Doubt.
Rory: Wish they hadn't.
Lane: X, Supertramp, The White Stripes. But in the negative, you have...
Rory: Sonny and Cher, the Later Years.
Lane: Jefferson Airplane, Fleetwood Mac. I know of two country music stars whose backup singers shot them in the groin.
Rory: Whoa. That's wicked hate.
Quote from Application Anxiety
Rory: She's writing her drummer-seeks-rock-band ad.
Lane: And it's not reading right to me. Could you guys look it over?
Rory: Let's see. "Drummer with strong beat seeks band into the Accelerators, the Adolescents, the Adverts, Agent Orange, the Angelic Upstarts, the Agnostic Front, Ash..."
Rory: You went alphabetically.
Lane: Seemed tidy.
Lorelai: And a little OCD.
Rory: And a little long.
Lane: I can't make cuts.
Rory: It's three pages, single spaced – make cuts.
Lane: But this is the cut-down version. I mean, just from the letter A, I excluded AC/DC, the Animals, and A-Ha, footnoted as a guilty pleasure.
